    Fellow hatters,
    Me and my new team are situated in Europe, our quality and prices are extremely competitive. The problem is we are all geeks and don't know how to promote our selves to find partners. We don't
    want to go the freelancer way as this will be a step back for all of us. We are looking for serious people with serious projects that want to outsource them. So give me any ideas ( sites, forums, anything ) where to find people that are looking to outsource. Thank you in advance.

    Best regards,

    Why would you just quit your jobs without a plan?

    This is the sort of thing you guys should have done before you all quit your jobs.

    I'm not suggesting that means you won't have any success, but some forward planning would have been a very good idea.

    What are you selling?

    Europe has a population of 739.2 million (based on a 2011 count) so whatever you're selling, you're in the right place!

    Unless you guys get together and make a proper plan quickly you are going to face some serious issues.

    Just one example:

    You have all just quit your jobs so money is going to be tight and it sounds like you are going to be looking after business development yourselves.

    You won't all bring in equal amounts of business
    It is very likely that the guys who bring in the initial business will start to resent the others for 'not doing their fair share'.
    Their next thought is that they are bringing in the money so they should be entitled to a bigger share of the profits.
    This can rapidly escalate into serious conflict.

    Unless you discuss and formalise things like this first you are heading for trouble.

    Well this is BHW so I have drawn up a equation to solve your problem.

    x = Your business website

    y = Rank your website with services or your own SEO tools.

    x * y = Free organic traffic

    If you want to outsource either go to Fiverr, a freelance site (like Odesk) or even SEOClerks. Quitting your job before you were financially stable sounds kind of silly though (if this is the case, that is).

    Good luck....me and 8 friends just started a new business too. Can you help us sell? Thanks. All we have done is set up a very generic wordpress theme (like yours) and not provided any info (like you) - but we all all VERY smart (we quit our jobs) - so as we sit here waiting for the phone to magically ring I would appreciate any help you have. We are really good, trust me.

    On a serious note: NO GAME PLAN?????? lol...I sense there will be 8 unemployed people soon (well technically you all are)...

    I think you're missing the marketing aspect of the whole package? How about a bit of SEO, blog marketing, SMM, or even ORM? :D Just pm'ed you for some ideas.
